Matt Cassel

Matthew Brennan Cassel is an American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the seventh round of the 2005 NFL draft. He played college football at USC. A journeyman quarterback throughout his career, Cassel has also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Tennessee Titans, and Detroit Lions. Cassel became the Patriots' starting quarterback after Week 1 of the 2008 season when reigning NFL MVP Tom Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury. In February 2009, the Patriots used their franchise tag on Cassel, extending him a one-year contract worth over $14 million, the largest one-year contract for an offensive player in NFL history. Later that offseason, the Patriots made a trade which sent Cassel to the Kansas City Chiefs, who signed him to a 6-year, $62.7 million contract in July 2009.
